Dr William Allchorn is a specialist on anti-Islamic protest movements and radical right social movements in the UK and Western Europe. His PhD thesis mapped political, policing and local authority responses to the English Defence League in five UK locations. William is now working on his first research monograph under contract with Routledge – looking at policy responses to the EDL and Britain First over the past decade. His previous published work has looked at the dynamics of activism within anti-Islam movements and counter-extremism responses towards such groups. William has taught undergraduate courses and given lectures on the radical right in Western Europe; both at the social movement and party political level. Previous consultancy has included delivering counter narrative engagement sessions in the North East of England and putting together a ‘Countering Radical Right Narratives’ educational pack due for the Department of Education ‘Educate against Hate’ website.

In their report on Xenophobia and Radicalism in modern Britain, the authors brilliantly reveal the theme of the growth of these phenomena after voting on exit from the EU, analyze the main trends, give a detailed picture of the British right-wing parties and groups, as well as Islamist movements in this country . In conclusion, the authors elaborate on recommendations that could help correct the situation with intolerance, and not only in Britain, but also in other European countries.
